Tennis - Men's

The Radford Men's Tennis team, led by Head Coach JD Shade, has a rich tradition at Radford University. Last year, the team played the toughest schedule in the Big South facing multiple top-programs in the country and earning 9 victories

The team has kicked-off its 2024 campaign and is eager to return to the Big South Tournament Championship and secure a spot in post-season play.

Help us enhance our student-athletes' experience and lead them to success with your gift today. When you give, you will help us offset expenses for travelling to participate in a multi-team tournament over spring break as well as gear! 

Your donations allow us to enhance our athletes’ travel experiences, including transportation and accommodations. High-performance gear is also important to our program because it allows our athletes to represent Radford near and far and enables them to perform at the highest levels. Expanded competition at multi-team tournaments helps our players adapt to a wider variety of playing environments, raises the team's competitive profile and can also be a powerful recruiting tool. You can help us when you give today! Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.
